You may have seen Flashdance on the big screen or in the Big Apple but now this popular musical has come to Philadelphia. I visited the Academy of Music to see if I could pick up some of the moves the cast performs on stage.

Jillian Mueller plays the lead role, Alex Owens, who is a steel worker by day and a dancer at a club by night. Flashdance is the type of dancing the girls do in the club. The show has a broad spectrum of dancers ranging from break dancers to ballerinas. Jillian is always dancing. When she is not on stage she is taking dance classes. As a former dancer, I of course wanted to learn some of the dance moves. Jillian taught me the classic maniac run that everyone knows from the movie.
